BEATRICE was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. She is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in other states and Canada where our dogs get adopted.
BEATRICE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. She weighs around 37 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of January 2016. We saved BEATRICE with her sister SHILOH and we would prefer to adopt them together.
BEATRICE is a confident happy girl and her sister SHILOH gains confidence from her. BEATRICE is great with other dogs of all sizes ranging from 8 pound chi's to 95 pounds German Shepherds. She is very responsive and well mannered. She loves to have her belly rubbed and ears scratched. She does most things with her sister SHILOH, but she does play with the other dogs.
She uses the dogs doors to come in and out to play and do her business. I do not know if she would know to tell you she needs to go out, but I don't think it would take her long to learn at all. She has a lot of energy bundled in that medium sized body and being of a working breed, she will need a lot of physical exercise and mental stimulation. She would be well suited to a family that is familiar with her breed or a working dog mentality.
We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how she would be around cats.
BEATRICE would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with her on her obedience and manners, who would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both BEATRICE and her humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed.
We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!
BEATRICE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

BEATRICE is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
